Hey, I've got an ICM-3216 which I picked up. Wow, it was 5 years ago
Anyways, the HDD (a Seagate ST225N maybe?) and QIC tape drive were
borked when I got it, and I hadn't had any success finding any OS
(Genix maybe?) for it. I've got replacement drives to use, but no
media to install from. :(
Any chance that you (or someone else here) could help me out with that?
I've also got a fully maxed-out Encore Multimax which I finally have
somewhere I might be able to play with it (and I've got all the manuals
and install media for it). IIRC, it's got (I think) 40 x NS32332's and
128MB of RAM (and some big SMD disks and a nice-looking
vertical-rack-mount 9-track drive).
I think that those are the only two NS32k architecture machines that
I've got (and they're pretty well spread between low and high-end :).
